Hyperthyroid-graves disease issues.

I take 175 of levothyroxine and I am only 100 pounds. I took in uptake 123 pill about 12 years ago but still suffer from Graves disease symptoms.

Do you have recent thyroid hormone and antibodies testing results? Maybe you are still producing hormones, or it could be that 175 is too much?

I never knew that info was available to me at testing. I have been on this dose for nearly 10 yrs. I test about 3 times a year. Everyone in here talks about there levels and I have no idea about what mine are. I am always told they will call my script in when the results come back and they will see me at my next blood draw. What questions should I be asking???
